Ok, so I finally joined CA. I must admit that I've always been intimidated by you guys but the opportunities that everyone provides for critiquing and improvement finally overcame my shyness and I decided to start a sketchbook.
About Me: I'm 23 years old and I've been drawing since forever, mostly portraits and costume designs though. Because of my love of costume design I fell in love with researching but I soon realized that I didn't just want to create a costume design, I wanted to create a character with a story. I also love to design the various props/weaponry and I like figuring out how they would work.
As for pieces, I was never a prolific artist and only recently did one of my friends encourage me to just draw all the time *eternally indebted to her* so most of my art is a little old but I'm trying to do something everyday now so I'll be adding alot more as I come along with that.
Media: I grew up using pencils and charcoal for costume design and head drawing but I finally broke down and started trying digital art, using a mouse and a random program that was on the computer already but my friend just sold me their spare tablet (Wacom Intuos 2) and I bought CS3 so I'm experimenting with that now. Because of my inexperience with digital, I don't know too much about brushes or anything but I'm picking up tidbits here and there and I'm trying to experiment with them.
So I guess I'll just start by posting what I have, I'd love any critique you can give me or suggestions of what I should do to improve in character design.
This is in chronological order so if you want to see anything new you need to read on. ^_Q
